As I’ve mentioned before, when it comes to social media nothing ever stays the same for long. Case and point, Facebook is making some new changes. (Insert shocked face here!) Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook creator/mastermind is introducing ‘The Timeline”…again! Yes, just a year after we were forced to change over to the timeline dark side the man goes and changes it again!
Rest easy folks’ the changes aren’t too detrimental. The new Timeline feature will include a bigger emphasis on the apps you use. Currently, apps such as Instagram and Pinterest are available for viewing on your page, but soon new apps like Netflix and Fab will be available as well. (Basically, Facebook is more ‘up in your business’ than ever before.
The Timeline layout will also be a little different.
Granted, we’re not going from this:
But merely to this:
It appears as though Facebook is becoming more visually obsessed friendly. Before you boycott, this new layout lets you design and customize your columns. If you’d prefer your Instagram photos to have the top spot on your page, by all means!
All in all, if we would prefer to continue using Facebook as the largest social media outlet in the universe we’re going to have to make like REO Speedwagon and ‘Roll with the Changes.”
